No? It’s Britain! Learn how police community support officers giving talks on cycle safety were banned from cycling to schools to give them until they had passed a test and exam- and, after falling in the prison shower, a career criminal was compensated £248,000, including a substantial amount for lost earnings. If you find yourself grimacing at the stupidity of health and safety gone mad, you’ll love this collection of idiotic interventions and ridiculous rules that have come into play to keep us from harm.
